A couple of Lesh lyric liberties from that song:

I started out on Heineken, but soon hit the harder stuff
(Dylan started out on Burgundy)
I'm going back to San Francisco, I do believe I've had enough
(Dylan was going back to New York City)

Something tells me that Bob wasn't at all bothered by his interpretation.

I got tired of String Cheese Incident a long time ago, but they covered this song really well, with some of the same lyrical liberties taken by Lesh (tentacles, drummer, no Heineken). The 11/1/2000 Asheville show is the best I've heard from that band (I saw them 2 nights earlier, which was still a fine show), and they nailed Tom Thumb that night. Check it out (streamable, lossless, all points in between, like the good old days):

also - tentacles are all in a knot ( fingers - Dylan)

my best friend my drummer ( dylan - doctor )won't even say what is was that I DROPPED ( Dylan - got )

note the edit is to correct my incorrect spellling of Knot ( what was I thinkin? )

I'll be enjoying on the ride in tomorrow thanks to you. Glad to see someone other than someone who only saw 90's shows can appreciate this. Helps my sanity to know I'm not off base. I mean the first set especially is VERY good - how can you not like that Salt Lake City? And the Music Never Stopped just growls. Even the T.Jed is good. And Visions of Johanna? Sweet! Anyway, thanks again!

Wish I was going somewhere. No, just the hour drive in to work. The advantage of commuting ( besides being able to afford where I live ) is that's my listening time. Don't allways get a chance to get a REAL listen at home. I mean a 30 minute Dark Star ( more if you throw in the Dew or whatever comes next )uninterrupted with a house full of kids? Not often. But an hour drive each way? Makes the gas prices hurt a lot less that's for sure.

Understood. I usually only listen on the way home for a half hour. Takes all week to get thru a show. I'm a fan of the Bob and Tom morning show as I usually need a laugh before work (during work and after work doesn't hurt either).

Bob and Tom? Names sound familiar for some reason. Syndicated?

Those guys are hilarious. I don't listen often, but on vacation sometimes I'll tune-in. Good stuff. Same humor as we use here. The "see what sticks" method of comedy.
